Season 2 of “Car Wash Convos™” to Feature 22 New Student-Athletes, Building on the Success of Season 1 to Further Connect Universities, Student-Athletes and Fans in ZIPS Communities  

Plano, TX ZIPS Car Wash announced today the expansion of its multi-year investment in collegiate athletics to 14 schools and 22 new student-athletes in the 2023-2024 academic year through its continued sponsorship agreement with LEARFIELD, the media and technology company powering college sports. As part of the program, ZIPS is now the Proud Sponsor of three new schools, including The University of Texas, Virginia Tech, and The University of Memphis. ZIPS, along with LEARFIELD Studios, will kick off Season 2 of “Car Wash Convos™”, its innovative and engaging approach to NIL, by featuring student athletes from six universities in 22 episodes to be released this academic year.

“The collaboration between LEARFIELD Studios and ZIPS to create ‘Car Wash Convos’ proved to be unique to engage fans – allowing student-athletes the opportunity to build their brand and online communities while proudly wearing their school’s logos as they were featured in laid-back interviews during a few minutes of a ZIPS car wash,” said Roy Seinfeld, Senior Vice President of National Sales for LEARFIELD.

Season 1 of “Car Wash Convos” resulted in more than 4 million impressions and over 2 million video views. While new student athletes will be featured this season, the interview hosts from Season 1 will remain the same, all of which have strong ties back to their respective universities and the athletics department.

ZIPS will continue to engage LEARFIELD to connect school IP with student-athletes in name, image, and likeness (NIL) in “Car Wash Convos™” Season 2. With the addition of ten athlete integrations this year, 22 episodes will air this season on social platforms like YouTube and Instagram featuring interviews with male and female student-athletes representing football, basketball, baseball and Olympic sports like swimming and gymnastics from the universities of Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Memphis, and Texas.
